London, December 2015—the idea is born.
After countless frustrations to find the perfect butchery class for Tom’s Dad, he called Max to figure out a way to make it easier and more enjoyable for people to find and book the perfect learning experience in London.
London, August 2016—Obby goes live.
We are building a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book learning experiences in London (woodworking, floristry, pottery, cooking and much more).
Obby provides tools to class hosts to help them better manage their classes, whilst making it easier for customers to find the perfect learning experience.
One baby, two founders, over 100 class hosts and a fast growing team.
We are makers, builders, crafters, artists, florists and terrible bakers (apart from Tom, who quite fancies his sourdough bread).
We are from all corners of the world and we love one thing more than anything: helping people learn.
Does that sound like you? Come work with us.
We curate and meet all our teachers, artists, makers, chefs and mixologists personally, so that we can be confident in your learning experience.
If you can find your class cheaper somewhere else, please let us know and you will get your money back.
Booking with Obby is in real-time and we will securely hold your money until your class has been provided.
Sometimes things come up in life. That's why we offer the most flexible cancellation terms around.
